I'd ask for this opening to be called the "Chernoff Defence" but I'm sure someone somewhere has somehow tried this already.

Well, damn.

Nothing personal GB but I doubt if I'll be trying your "Miles(?) Defense" to KGD anytime soon - like in the next eon or so.

CB BIG DB 2011 updated to right now with 5.4 million games has 7 games with this distinctly dubious defense.

I've had bad results with KGA as White but will still play vs it as Black - was using Fischer's Defense 3...d6 with mixed results and next will try the Modern Defense 3...d5

10...Nh4 was awesome! And your opening must have put alot of pressure on white to destroy you as you psuedo-mock him ;) 

Great game, very thorough destruction during the last parts.

Thanks Chris, but I wasn't trying to mock, I simply thought it had enough surprise value to be useful in this particular situation.

Surprise value, mock, same thing ;)

I unsuccessfully tried to bust this defense against Stockfish.  It appears that what Hort played was better than my try.
